PLAN AHEAD: USE YOUR YEAR-END DOLLARS TO STOCK UP ON ESSENTIAL IMMUNIZATION
RESOURCES FOR 2005--OR TO CONTRIBUTE TO IAC
Does it look like your department or organization will be unable to use up
its annual budget by the end of the year? If so, the Immunization Action
Coalition (IAC) suggests you use your year-end dollars NOW to place an order
for bulk quantities of essential immunization resources you'll need in 2005.
In the past several years, IAC has shipped more than two million items to
providers around the world. Some of the most popular items include the
following: (1) the Adults Only Vaccination kit (2) the video "Immunization
Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring," (3) Adult Immunization Record Cards,
and (4) the Slide Set of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases.
Order these popular items in bulk, and you'll receive substantial discounts.
Also, please note there is no shipping charge for small orders shipped by
fourth-class mail within the United States. In addition, with a contribution
of $75 or more, you'll receive a CD of more than 150 of IAC's most popular
print pieces (for information, see the CONTRIBUTE $75 OR MORE section toward
the end of this article).
ADULTS ONLY VACCINATION KIT
The heart of the kit is the 157-page guide, "Adults Only Vaccination: A
Step-by-Step Guide." This comprehensive resource includes practical
information on ALL aspects of adult immunization. It presents clear,
authoritative, CDC-reviewed material on administering adult vaccines,
educating patients about them, billing for them, and much more. It is
indispensable for any setting where adults are immunized, such as STD
clinics, family planning clinics, college health services, OB/GYN practices,
and prisons. In addition, the kit includes two "how-to" instructional
videos: Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring (described below)
and CDC's new "How to Protect Your Vaccine Supply."
IF YOU VACCINATE ADULTS, YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO BE WITHOUT THE KIT!
For comprehensive information about the kit--including a look at the guide's
many worksheets, checklists, protocols, and educational materials--visit
IAC's website at
$75 per kit; special discount pricing is available for orders of
10 copies or more. To order online or by fax or mail, using a
credit card, purchase order, or check, go to:

IMMUNIZATION TECHNIQUES VIDEO
You can ensure your staff has expertise in administering vaccines
by ordering and showing them the video "Immunization Techniques:
Safe, Effective, Caring." Developed by the California Department of
Health Services Immunization Branch and a team of national experts,
the 35-minute video presents abundant practical information on
vaccinating people of all ages. An excellent tool for training new
staff and refreshing the skills of experienced staff, the video
comes with presenter notes and a skills checklist. $30 each;
discounts for orders of 20 or more--please call (651) 647-9009.

ADULT IMMUNIZATION RECORD CARDS. Invaluable for educating adults
that immunization is a lifelong process, the card lists seven
vaccines for adults. Use the card during patient visits to discuss
a patient's vaccination status with them; then give it to them and
encourage them to put it in their wallet and use it to keep track
of their next vaccination due date. Printed on smudge-proof, rip-proof, waterproof paper, the card is intended for lifelong use.

SLIDE SET OF VACCINE-PREVENTABLE DISEASES. This powerful visual aid
is intended for clinic staff and community outreach workers who
make immunization presentations. It includes 28 color slides of
children and adults with vaccine-preventable diseases. When you
show your patients a picture of an infant with severe varicella
disease or other infections, they will begin to understand the
seriousness of the diseases that vaccines can prevent. Each
riveting image is easily worth more than a thousand words.
To assist you with slide presentations, an English-language script
is included. A Spanish-language script is available on request.
$25 per set.
